Find out how these new transfer Falcons feel about their transition into our CB community.
As freshman we have all felt the stress of finding new friends, interacting with teachers and getting involved around campus. But there are some sophomores and juniors this year at Christian Brothers who are going through this process as new CB transfer students.
Fortunately, we have many open-minded and invigorating new transfer students around CB who have contributed many stories and laughter with their new friends and teachers.
Two of these transfers welcomed to the CB community are two young ladies in the sophomore class that transferred from St. Francis.
“I never wanted to go to St. Francis, and I was supposed to go to McClatchy, however after my first day at CB I knew this is where I belonged,” Andrea Martinez (’15) said enthusiastically.
“It was really easy to make friends and I plan on playing soccer here at CB.”
Mackey Grieve (’15), another St. Francis transfer, has been very pleased with the welcome she has received here at CB.
Although, Mackey made wonderful friends at St. Francis and continues to keep in contact with them, she says, “It was easy to [distinguish] honest and welcoming people here at CB and I made friends really quickly.”
Mackey played for the women’s water polo team this fall and also plans to play on the JV soccer team here at CB while continuing to make new friends that are in her class.
Another transfer student with high hopes in playing for CB’s Women’s Varsity soccer team is sophomore Nici Lopez (’15).
Nici previously attended Rio Linda but initially planned on attending CB the beginning of her freshman year.
“I was first attracted to the athletic teams, later, I realized that it was really easy to make new friends,” Nici states.
Agreeing with Nici is junior Kennedy High School transfer, Zaire Dartis (’14).
“My parents initially wanted me to Kennedy, but after they saw all the budget cuts Kennedy were going through they felt that CB would provide me with a better education and more welcoming environment.”
When asked what she likes most at CB Zaire states, “I love the diversity at CB.”
Zaire is not only adjusting well with the junior class but she has succeeded in making a big difference with her strength, agility and positive attitude on the volleyball court and during Black Student Union meetings.
It is a wonderful and a great opportunity for transfer students to experience the wonderful aspects of CB. Make sure to welcome these wonderful young ladies as well as other transfer students if you see them walking by.
